Character Analysis

Post  MistyBlue on Thu Aug 20, 2009 8:55 am

Write a small analysis of three to five people in your life, this could be family or friends. In your descriptions include personal details such as ..height, hair and eye colour, ethnicity..! Then write down as much as you can about their personalities, is one placid and calm? Is another short tempered or jealous? When you have each of your character descriptions set out, replace their names with entirely fictional ones and write an approximate 1,000 word story which includes some of them. You can even use your own character in the story!

For this exercise, concentrate on developing your characters rather than focusing on the plot.
An example would be a story about 'two middle-aged ladies at lunch, bickering over which of them looks the best after years of plastic surgery', In the story you can highlight their clashing personalities, rather than a story focusing on a priceless diamond stolen from a jewellery shop.

"Sometimes you're doing good work, even when it feels like all you're managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position" - Stephen King
